A person applies for and receives aid in the county where he lives.

1. He is living in Alabama voluntarily, not for a temporary purpose, with the intent to make the State his home; or
2. He has entered Alabama either with a job commitment or to seek employment (whether or not currently employed), and is not receiving assistance from another state at the time his benefits from Alabama begin.
(b) An adult incapable of stating intent to make Alabama his home is considered a resident if he is living in Alabama and is not receiving assistance from another state at the time his benefits from Alabama begin.
(c) A child is considered to be a resident of Alabama if he is making his home in Alabama other than on a temporary basis, or if his caretaker is a resident.
(2) Temporary absence from the State does not affect residence unless it is for the purpose of establishing residence elsewhere. After his first three months of absence from Alabama, the recipient must report quarterly his plans and intent to return to Alabama. Aid will be discontinued at any time he fails to do so.
